Sunday Dalí: Eggs on the Plate Without the Plate, 1932.
Dalí said that one day, after rubbing his eyes, he became fascinated with the brilliant yellow, orange, and ochre colors he saw. As a result, he says, he had a flashback to his mother’s womb, and created this paranoiac-critical explanation of the experience.
Dalí said the center egg yolk represented himself in the womb. The eggs on the plate represent Gala’s eyes. The father and sun that can be seen in the window are from an earlier painting entitled The First Days of Spring.
